In with 2016

20th January 2016
Ok I know 2016 has been here for a few weeks - I can't believe its nearly February already.

The last few months of 2015 we're a tad driven by the weather (which was mild and rained a lot) and by work (which was busy and drained a lot). Both were bad for taking photos.

Few frosts, little snow, work deadlines and a very mild Xmas break meant that I had little opportunity or enthusiasm for heading out into the Peak District to take damp versions of the nicer photo that I had already taken.

Looking back on my previous winter photos I see frost in trees, ice in streams, icicles on buildings, snowy hillsides, chestnuts roasting on a open fire - you get the picture. Now I see that shorts are still in fashion for some hardy types despite it being mid January. Come to think of it, I don't actually remember wearing any shorts even in the summer. Just the fresh breeze wafting around my .. oh no, hang on, I do recall wearing jeans. Its all a blur, officer.

So with 2016 underway I've got a couple of photo trips planned so that is something to aim for. Hopefully work won't continue it's evil attempt to shorten my life by several years and I'll be able to make the most of opportunities that come along. I might even get my shorts out.
